Youth Engaged in Wetlands

WWN supports Youth Engaged in Wetlands (YEW). Their Network Lead, Elise Allely, sits on WWN’s committee as Youth representative. They have made a big splash in a short period of time; founded in 2017, we worked together at Ramsar COP13 in Dubai in October 2018, and subsequently to build their capacity. Immediately they delivered a closing statement to the Ramsar COP13.
